Do Photos Count?

“What are you doing Nani?”

“I am measuring the rice for cooking.”

“Why do you ritualistically put in some extra rice grains and then put back some in the container?”

“Traditionally we cook a little extra for an unexpected guest and make sure to keep some for tomorrow.”

“As if that tiny bit will help!” I scoffed. “Superstitious nonsense.”

“No harm done…”

“My cook’s son lost his job. There’s an opening for a driver but she refused.”

“Why?”

“The astrologer advised against it.”

I scrolled down for the Friday Fictioneer photo.

 Damn. Where could I spot a flying crow at night?

Note: For the uninitiated, myna birds are very powerful and accurate fore-tellers.

  • One for sorrow (which can be dispelled if you spot a flying crow)
  • Flying one for success
  • Two for joy
  • Three for letter
  • Four for boy
  • Five for gift

I have no idea where this originated from but it is 100 % true especially the one for sorrow. Although I’m not sure if photos count 😉 Psst just in case you can’t find a flying crow, make a circle with your forefinger and thumb and cut (open it) with something (thrice!). 😀

Well I confessed mine 😛 What’s yours?

Hello! Didn’t the week just fly by? But of course it is festival season – Durga Puja Dusshera Diwali… Oh the list is too long and by the end of it my weighing scale would probably crash out 😦  😉

Wont

How true is that! But then again…

Flat

So anyone with a flat tummy and enjoying life – come on make yourself heard! Up next is a slideshow with a glimpse of a typical veggie market, particularly in small towns in India

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Notice anything special about it? This is from a display in a Puja Pandal at Siliguri all made of clay, including the vegetables. Amazing isnt it?

Sabji

And now for something really fresh off the oven! Above is a vegetable instruction list handed by the lady of the house to her hubby as he went out to do some shopping 😀 Hilarious and educative – I too didnt know so much! And now the mystery about why women in India fast and pray for not only the long life of their husbands but also that they have the same husband in their next life as well. They have invested a lot into this one guy and who wants another novice in the next life 😀

In case anyone needs decoding : Methi : Fenugreek; Bhindi: Ladyfinger or okra; Mirchi: Green chilly; Palak: Indian spinach; Bhajiwala: Vegetable seller

Hello folks! It’s fun time again but first a bit of gyan 😉

Now that we have that sorted, how about some pearls of wisdom from students 😉

Geography
Q: Name the four seasons.
A: Salt, pepper, mustard and vinegar.
Q: Explain one of the processes by which water can be made safe to drink.
A: Flirtation makes water safe to drink because it removes large pollutants like grit, sand, dead sheep and canoeists.
Q: How is dew formed?
A: The sun shines down on the leaves and makes them perspire.
Q: What is a planet?
A: A body of earth surrounded by sky.
Q: What causes the tides in the oceans?
A: The tides are a fight between the Earth and the Moon. All water tends to flow towards the moon, because there is no water on the moon, and nature abhors a vacuum. I forget where the sun joins in this fight.

Clearly the student is itching for a fight 😀

Anyway, I heard docs are beginning to lay down conditions for patients?

Doc

Could very well be true, psst so many times I too didn’t go to the doctor because I know just as much as he/she does 😉

Einstein

Sometimes the best way to get everybody on the same page at home is to switch off the wifi 😀 Almost magically one by one the heads poke out of their cubbyholes…Ah well I am not complaining – I would probably be the first one out 😉

Anyway, care to go for a drive? In the original SUV?

SUV

Well, what do you think? Okay one more for the road – my personal favorite 🙂

“What’s up Sia? You look upset.” Her colleague, Nisha asked.

Sia made a moue. “The Boss is mad at me for taking leave at such a crucial juncture.”

“Damn that woman.” Nisha said. “Why were you on leave? All well?”

“Not exactly.” Sia said. “My father-in-law is in the hospital…”

“Oh I am sorry. What happened?”

“He had a heat stroke while exploring the Old Fort.”

“You went exploring in this heat? Are you crazy?”

“Don’t blame me! Explore your city is part of my son’s holiday homework.”

“Home*&%^#work!” Nisha cursed. “That took us to the brink of divorce.”

“What?!”

“I had to stay up till late to complete my 6-year-old daughter’s assignments.”

“Uho.”

“Things came to a head when she had to make a family tree.”

“What happened?”

“My mother-in-law accused me of deliberately pasting a photo that made her look old and fat.”

“Did you?”

“Err, well…”

Just 4 Fun # 52

Hey what’s up people? Oh that reminds me – one two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word.

Any guesses?

No?

Without any further ado the word is UP. It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v].

It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP?

At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election (if there is a tie, it is a toss UP) and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report?

We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car.

At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses.

To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.

And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is blocked UP.

We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!

To become more knowledgeable, about the proper uses of UP look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions.

If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don’t give UP, you may wind UP with (UP to) a hundred or more.

When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it soaks UP the earth. When it does not rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I’ll wrap it UP, for now…… my time is UP!

So, did this whole thing, crack you UP? 😀

Wasn’t it completely insane? Actually that’s another word that gets me all worked up. Why insane? Why not outsane? Sigh

 

Anyway moving on, in a welcome and long overdue move, the Supreme Court of India has ruled that Right to Privacy is a fundamental right. Three cheers for this major step forward and the ripples are already being felt in all parts of the country.

Right

😀 😀

ShapeThat reminds me I better get moving before that turns out to be my shadow. It’s not that I dislike exercising – it’s just that I am so good at making excuses.

Excuse

That’s it from me today…unless you would like to read about Pedro?

Pedro was driving down the Panjim street in a swift because he had an important meeting and couldn’t find a parking place.

Looking up to heaven he said, “Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up my Whiskey. I will give up Gambling and Womanizing too !”

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

Pedro  looked up again and said, “Never mind, I found one ! Sorry I bothered you !!”

Cheers! 😀
